Kansas University’s softball team revealed its 55-game 2011 schedule, a slate that features 20 games against NCAA Tournament teams from a year ago.
The Jayhawks open the season Feb. 11-13, 2011, at the Jacksonville University Tournament.
KU will play 14 games at Arrocha Ballpark, highlighted by a doubleheader versus Women’s College World Series participant Missouri and NCAA Tournament participants Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas A&M.
“We are excited about our spring schedule,” second-year KU coach Megan Smith said. “Our pre-conference segment, with games against North Carolina and Georgia Tech, will help our young team prepare for Big 12 competition. The Big 12 will once again be one of the toughest softball conferences in the country and we are looking forward to that challenge.”
Kansas will make its season debut versus Smith’s alma mater, North Carolina, on Feb. 11, 2011, at the Jacksonville tourney.
